About The Muppets
The wacky antics of those famous furry funny oddballs get another big screen outing that all the family can enjoy. Muppets super fan Jason Segel has created Walter, a new puppet who leads this musical story that has both slapstick and satire. Segel plays Walter's human brother Gary. When Walter hears about an oil tycoon named Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) who wants to demolish the old studios where the muppets used to perform, he decides to gather the gang so that they can stage a benefit show to save the venue. But the former stars have gone their separate ways: Kermit is no longer on speaking terms with Miss Piggy, an editor at Vogue magazine, and Animal is taking anger management classes. As Walter connects with his own kind, Gary starts neglecting his girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) in favour of helping his childhood heroes.
